172 Scriptures Mentioning “Child” — 21 - 25. Prayer at end.
In one Internet search for the word child, 172 passages were listed.
Here are five of them.
It may be interesting to see the context in which this word is placed. It may be worthwhile to ponder the passage and sort out the meaning of this word among the others in any passage. It may be surprising how many thoughts will pop up unheralded to stretch our thinking a bit in God’s direction.
Does the word refer to a specific child? If so, who is it? What was this child’s place in the world?
Is the scripture one that brings joy? Sadness? Contemplation?
Does “child” refer to the Saviour in some of the entries?
What does “child” mean to you in one passage or another?
In the pro-life world, a child takes a primary center place. That is where new human life begins, with a child, a baby.
1. Deuteronomy 25:5
If brethren dwell together, and one of them die, and have no child, the wife of the dead shall not marry without unto a stranger: her husband’s brother shall go in unto her, and take her to him to wife, and perform the duty of an husband’s brother unto her.
2. Judges 11:34
And Jephthah came to Mizpeh unto his house, and, behold, his daughter came out to meet him with timbrels and with dances: and she was his only child; beside her he had neither son nor daughter.
3. Judges 13:5
For, lo, thou shalt conceive, and bear a son; and no razor shall come on his head: for the child shall be a Nazarite unto God from the womb: and he shall begin to deliver Israel out of the hand of the Philistines.
4. Judges 13:7
But he said unto me, Behold, thou shalt conceive, and bear a son; and now drink no wine nor strong drink, neither eat any unclean thing: for the child shall be a Nazarite to God from the womb to the day of his death.
5. Judges 13:8
Then Manoah intreated the LORD, and said, O my Lord, let the man of God which thou didst send come again unto us, and teach us what we shall do unto the child that shall be born.
Lord, direct our thoughts to You as we ponder these sentences from Your word, about children. Lead us to pray for children – in general, those in the womb, some that we know, our own, our friends’ or neighbors’. Lead us, Lord, to humble prayer for all children.
